Ok let's go:

 

Brandon has a quote for everything! I'd place Sazed in Hufflepuff, Kelsier/Vin in Gryffindor, Elend in Ravenclaw. These are tough!

Hufflepuff is complete crap. I love ravenclaw, and slytherin is cool. Gryffindor at least has the bravery piece. But if you actually read the book, the sorting hat talks about how Hufflepuff says "I'll take the rest!" Huffepuff is originally just the group nobody else wanted, then people have since added attributes like "nice" and "kind". And also, hufflepuff never did anything important. They have one good character, and his main role is to die. Slytherin has almost every one of the cool villains. Gryffindor has heroes, brave people. Ravenclaw has professors, scholars, the people that are the most helpful to society.

Hufflepuff? Hufflepuff has regular people who fill no special role, are just there.

How dare you sir! You have offend me! Since nobody else is defending Hufflepuff, I will take up the burden. Do not worry, brothers and sisters. I will educate these plebians about the true power of house Hufflepuff.

Hufflepuff is the greatest house, because it values traits that actually foster a community, whereas the other houses ideals create division and strife. Loyalty, dedication, hard work, and fair play are the what Hufflepuffs exemplify, and these ideals lend themselves to acceptance and fairness. Hufflepuff are normal, decent people, and let's face it: normal people are boring. But they also don't create conflict like we see in the other houses, especially Gryffindor and Slytherin. They're so antithetical they are almost always fighting. And instead of working together they are always working against each other. Then you see Ravenclaw. The problem with Ravenclaw is that the house traits say nothing about how to interact with other people. Ravenclaws could be spiteful mean people, or they could be kind. It could go either way, and valuing intelligence often leads to arrogance and condescension towards people who may not be book smart.

The way I see it, Hufflepuffs are the mediators, the people who just want everyone to get along. They may make for boring characters (though I'd argue Rowling just didn't take the effort to portray them as more interesting), and people from different houses may make for a better story. But if Harry Potter were real life, I know damnation well which house I'd want everybody to be in. Cause conflict and strife may make for interesting reads, but I'd rather have a normal life, where everybody is just decent to one another and there's no storming hate.

I have two brothers and a sister, so there's four kids in my family. I'm a Ravenclaw, my sister is a Gryffindor, my older brother is a Slytherin and my younger brother is a Hufflepuff so between the four of us we have the whole castle represented.

I was a Gryffindor last time I took the Pottermore test, but honestly I don't identify with that house at all. Gryffindors tend to be adventurous/curious/passionate to a fault, and honestly I wish that Neville and Hermione had been put in Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw respectively so we got some more interaction with the other houses. And it couldn't have hurt to have at least one consistent good guy in Slytherin (Snape and Malfoy don't count).

They kinda made up for that in FB with Leta and everything, but yeah, a viewpoint from someone who is a total and complete good guy would be nice.

I am not surprised by the sheer magnitude of the Ravenclaw population on this website. I am also a Ravenclaw, and relate heavily to pretty much every Ravenclaw we spend time with, other than Lockhart, and especially relate to Luna's eccentric-ness

Luna is my spirit animal in every way.

I've taken the pottermore test multiple times, and I tend to get Slytherin and Ravenclaw, although slytherin is the most common...

My (irrelevant) patronus is a Chestnut Mare...the irony in that is that my phobia is horses

I've taken the test twice in a space of about five years because losing-my-account reasons and both times I was sorted into Ravenclaw.

Now, I'm actually surprised by the results of the poll. I mean, given where we are, it shouldn't, but from what I remember in the old Pottermore site the number of members in each house was displayed and it was pretty balanced. I'd expect Ravenclaw to be the main house in the Shard, yes, but not this big of a difference.

Gryffindor the first two times I took the Pottermore test (nearly ten years ago!), Ravenclaw the third. I still stand by Gryffindor though!
